1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    He pm'd me last week when he purchased them that I was first on the list should he want to sell. Unfortunately, for all you bring to this forum, I wouldnt be offended if they went to you. Your contribution to the Epaulet thread keeps me coming back everyday to see your fit pics. Bravo.

    Your six eyelet chukka is superb & it's nice to see the cobblestones back.

    I agree, I'm trying not to email him about these because I have the navy suede LWB from Leffot from last year, but these are beautiful. I assume they're on the barrie?


    Thanks man, appreciated. I guess you don't read MC Casual too much...lol. So Moo, make me second on your list! Those are beautiful Indy's.

    Are these on crepe soles? Do you have a picture looking at the side? Curious how the toebox looks.

    If I had a pair of Indy boots with the regular sole but wanted a commando sole instead, is there a cobbler in the NYC area or anywhere in the USA that could do that for me ?

    Anybody know where I could buy a pair of Indy 403 with a commando sole ?

    Thanks

    Look up B. Nelson in NYC. His shop is mentioned in this thread rather frequently. People have to gone to them for custom re-soling services.

    Two very different pair of Aldens

    Whiskey Indy from Alden DC - both of my cordovan boots are from Alden DC, service has been superb (extra shoelaces and a shoehorn included).

    [​IMG]

    I love the Footbalance heel + double waterlock sole combo here

    [​IMG]

    I'm gonna get some sunlight photos of these Indys soon...

    These are a bit more dandyish... Suede and patent leather saddles from Leffot

    I just emailed B Nelson about this a couple weeks ago and they can do basically whatever you want. Double leather, Vibram, Dainite, etc.
